Abstract

Saccharification Studies Of Lignocellulosic Biomass From Antigonum Leptopus Linn

Author(s): S Hari Krishna, Y Prabhakar, R Jaganadha Rao

The ability of Trichoderma reesei QM-9414 cellulose complex to hydrolyse lignocellulosic biomass of Antigonum leptopus Linn was studied. Alkaline H2O2 pretreatment; 50o, pH 4.5, cellulose, 40 FPU/g substrate and substrate 2.5% were found to be optimum. Reaction time was reasonably less (24 h) with A. leptopus leaves compared with other substrates (48 h and more) due to the fine microsrystalline cellulose present in the leaves of A. leptopus.
